T430s HDD is missing in win10

#1 Post by magla » Wed Sep 04, 2019 9:15 am

Hi, I have upgraded from HDD to msata and installed win10.

If i boot from HDD i see both disks in win10
if i boot from msata SSD i dont see any other disk in win10

in bios they are both present

This T430s is my best laptop up until now... i never did like touchpads but now after a few days that is already changing :wink:

any ideas what am i missing?

Welcome to the forum. :) Look for the HDD in "Disk Management". Maybe it's there but just needs a drive letter assigned.

Print Screens wouldn't hurt.

Any unknown devices in the device manager? Disk controllers?

thanks for your questions
Any unknown devices in the device manager? Disk controllers?

u made me thinking as i did saw unknown device in device manager.

Call it beginners luck as i solved issue with installing system update and it suggested to install Intel Management Engine.

After reset i am seening both disks but unknown device is still there in device manager.

How could i find out which device could that be?
